I'm thinking positive thoughts here, maybe a Falkirk in my size and potentially possibly just maybe a Malvern in my size as well.

We hope to present some more information about this next week. We are sorry for all delays.

Indeed. Are these going to become available RTW or are they strictly MTO?

We will present more information about our fall orders from all of our brands later this summer but a little secret is that the 2553 Chelsea boot (similar as the G&G Burnham) will be available. More information to come later on.

The latest batch got me really excited about my MTO. Any idea when the next batch will arrive, @Skoaktiebolaget? Thanks.

A chelsea or chukka in Etrusco Calf would be sweet. 

 

Or if they look like this: :slayer:

Well I guess I'll have to keep my fingers crossed for at least another week.

We have new deliveries from Bonafè coming in during May and also early June. They are working as hard as they can to complete the MTO's we placed during our campaign.

Thanks. Also, you should change your signature, adding St Crispin's.

Crazy! Four months for a RTW shoe, that other vendors stock. Of course Skoak's prices are better.

Although not Skoak's fault, I'd appreciate proactive instead of reactive updates.

I have a question about this, as far as i have understood, Enzo bonafé offers some sort of antiquing ? Would it be possible to get your shoes orderd in January in this style ? Even if it is in plum museum ?

I would imagine they are just as frustrated. I'm sure they would prefer to have everything in the hands of their customers in a more timely fashion.

In regards to proactive vs reactive, I completely agree with you. However, in my limited experience this often lies fault with EG. It seems to me Skoak is regularly pushing them for timeframes and information but EG seems quite aloof in this regard. I know quite a few of us that find this aspect of EG very frustrating. If you are going to experience delays the least they could do is over communicate through the process. I know Gabriel is great at giving me the scraps of info that he gets.

It's too bad as I expected to be wearing the Shanklin this spring and within the next few weeks will be too warm here for this shade of suede. Oh well, will be great in the fall...

I am patiently waiting for GG STJ Chestnut to be delivered. Supposed to be finished end of April but now I'm hoping maybe end of May.

I agree and know that it's not Skoak's fault. Would love to hear, before having to ask, about whatever scraps you or anyone else is getting, which is worse, to me, than EG's aloofness.

Anyway, they will be here when they get here. I do appreciate Skoak organizing it.

I'm looking at some Enzo shoes now after looking at those MTO.

hi, I haven't done many MTOs but I don't think one can alter any specifications at this stage. what is this antiquing you speak of anyways?

I had a considerable amount of frustration with G&G over long unknown delivery dates (not through Skoak). Which was one of the reasons I decided to try StC. I've ordered a half dozen pairs over the last years and they're always delivered in 8 weeks. Even once when I placed an order between Christmas and New Years! I know they only just got started selling through Skoak, but it might be something to think about.

Last year I did 2 EG MTO's, one took 6 months and the other took 8 months to come in.
